Tricksy Tip Thursday – Temporarily Shorten Necklaces

|By Kayla Domeyer| Tricksy Tip Thursday

Ever put on your favorite necklace to realize that its too long for the neckline you’re wearing? This happens to me a lot with larger sweaters. No fear! You can repurpose an orphaned earring stud to help. Simply put on your necklace, gather the excess chain at the back and slip an old earring through the chain. Put the back on the earring and turn the necklace right way around. Voila! No more snagged or hidden necklaces!

    Would have helped a lot if you had more pictures showing how you accomplished this. Thanks for the tip all the same! :)

      Its really so simple, there aren’t any other picture to take! Just take a regular post earring, and slide it through two adjacent chain links from your necklace. This pinches it and makes it hang shorter. Just make sure the pinch is in the back of your neck and no one will know!
